Educational Objectives & Featured Courses
In our English field, we focus on English for Specific Purposes (ESP), which mainly concentrates on researching the practical application of English in relevant fields, particularly English language teaching, pragmatics, and intercultural business settings. We not only apply various theories to English education, translation, and creating classroom materials, but also expand the research of ESP or culture in diverse fields.
